about

ygam presents a recording of Ōtone’s performance for the month of contemporary music at ACUD MACHT NEU (Berlin, Sept. 2019) - an improvisation on two metallic instruments of the 'Tetsu' series and field recordings.

The work of Ōtone (Pablo Diserens’ other moniker) is characterised by an ongoing investigation of abstract industrial soundscapes. In 2017, they started a collection/series of self-made metallic objects called 'Tetsu' that they use as compositional tools and performative instruments. On stage, Ōtone manipulates these instruments and blends them with material from their field recordings archive. Their timbers exploration plays with the listeners’ acoustic memory to create new sonic combinations and associations until another landscape emerges. In this recorded performance, Ōtone improvises on 'Tetsu I' and 'Tetsu III', elaborating slowly evolving percussive accumulations and wind-instrument-like frictions, while a drone made out of recordings of resonating metal bars gradually ascends. Subtle recordings of birds, water and sea urchins also appear throughout the performance giving an organic touch to the metallic soundscape at play.

Ōtone dedicates this performance to Eliane Radigue.
